when i was setting my box up the other day from fresh, to try and better the update problem
i noticed when i was messing about with the drives.

i notice you can set the drives to be named /usr
so im wondering will that bring over everything that is in that folder ?

yea thats seems to break it.
dont know if i did it wrong, but sure


You not setting the name, your setting the mount point.

I won't bore you with the tech details just realise that if you don't know exactly what your changing is going to do then its just better to leave it alone.

Ouch !

I presume I read that in the wrong way and you never intended to try and belittle anyone? Is the technical side to technical to explain?

If you have a directory called /usr on your box and then you mount your hdd as /usr no files are copied to the hdd, as you probably found out, and the system will now look on the hdd for the files that should be in the /usr directory.

Now, if you copied all the files in /usr to the root of your hdd before mounting it then that should work. (but don't hold me to that)
